Brownie Baking, Leadership in the Making

20180130_213409

These are the delicious brownies that the Morrow Hall Dance Marathon Team made on Tuesday night. They sold pretty nicely on Wednesday, raising about $20 for Dance Marathon. Grant, Michael, Garrett, Ty, and Amber (3E) have been working together to put on fundraisers for upcoming Dance Marathon, and I have been helping here and there along the way. I highly recommend finding something on campus you enjoy and are passionate about to get involved in. This group has found that in Dance Marathon, and have already been putting ideas in action. Look at the many clubs and events UWP has to offer and get involved! If you need help along the way too, feel free to ask me!

GLACURH 2017

We all had a fantastic time at the GLACURH conference this weekend. AKA Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. There were 7 delegates from UW-Platteville that attended, including 5 from Morrow Hall, including 3 from 4 West. We gained more insight on what it means to be a leader and how we can be better ones. We also got to meet sooooo many different people from over 40 different schools. Each pin seen around our necks represents a delegate from a different school. This is a picture from the picture scavenger hunt. I thought we made great store mannequins.

Pioneer Provisions

20171017_214542As part of Morrow Works Week, we went over to Pioneer Provisions to volunteer. Pioneer Provisions, or P^2, is located on the west side of G.W.A.M. and is open every Tuesday. This space allows students who may be in need of food to grab what they need at no charge whatsoever. Today, Morrow Hall volunteers stacked the shelves with food from the Food Fight during Homecoming week. If you haven’t tried volunteering, P^2 would be a great place, otherwise there are many other opportunities around campus. It feels great to volunteer, so give it a try and you’ll probably enjoy it. Tomorrow, Morrow Hall is helping out at the campus garden, so come join us!

Jenny’s Wedding

Last Wednesday we put on a program for pride week by showing Jenny’s Wedding. To be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie and it showed me a side of the LGBT community that I wasn’t expecting. This movie is predominantly about the parents and family of Jenny who struggled to come out to them. When she finally decides to tell them her parents reject her and the rest of the movie is about their struggle of accepting her and finally realizing that she is their daughter regardless of how she feels. Overall, this was a great movie that presented a side of an LGBT person’s life that is often not shown.

Favorite Color

This board has a list of colors and what they say about you. Now these colors are by no means exactly what your personality might be like but it is interesting to see if there is any correlation. The colors appearing on this board are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, and grey. I hope you all find this experience fun and interesting and that it tells you a little about yourself.
